Alleged bikies arrested

POLICE have charged three men including an alleged senior outlaw motorcycle gang member as a result of investigation codenamed Strike Force Coomalie.

Police believe the three men aged 23-25, travelled from Tamworth to Cessnock on August 3 for a drug deal with a fourth man.

With the help of Maitland and Wyong Police, all four were arrested in the car park of a fast food restaurant in Cessnock and taken to Cessnock Police Station.

The 24-year-old man was allegedly found carrying methylamphetamine and cash, although police allege they found more methylamphetamine and a rifle at his Daruka home after a search.

Investigators also searched at the home of a 46-year-old Gorokan man, who police allege is a senior member of the Commancheros bikie gang, where they found and seized methylamphetamine and cash.

The 23, 24 and 46 year old men were charged with a range of offences including supply prohibited drug, deal proceeds of crime and firearms offences and refused bail to appear in Maitland Local Court.

The 25-year-old man was released without charge pending further investigations.
